Solar Glossary

AC: Alternating Current.

Array: A set of panels and an invertor which are working together as a system.

Cell: The smallest, basic Photovoltaic device that generates electricity when exposed to light. Each solar panel contains thousands of cells.

DC Direct Current: A one way flow of electric current. Typical sources of direct currents are electric cells, rectified power units and direct current generators. This is the current flow produced by a solar system. To be used for typical 240 volt household appliances, it must be converted to AC (alternating current).

Inverter: A device that turns electricity from direct current to alternating current.

KWh: The unit of measurement of electricity generated.

MCS: Micro-generation Certification Scheme. In order to receive the feed in tariff the installing company must be a member.

PV: Photo Voltaic.

Rails: The device which panels are fitted to the roof of the building with.

REA: Renewable Energy Assurance. Suppliers and installers must be a member of REA to sell solar panels.

Solar Meter: The meter which measures how much electricity your system has generated.
